Exhausters, optimality conditions and related problems. (English) Zbl 1149.90141
This paper uses the notions of upper and lower exhausters, introduced by the first author [Optimization 45, No. 1–4, 13–29 (1999; Zbl 0954.90050)], to obtain optimality conditions and to characterize Lipschitz as well as quasidifferentiable functions within the class of positively homogeneous functions. Expressions for the Michel-Penot and the Fréchet subdifferentials in terms of exhausters are also provided.
